Sleazy bars

Boom Boom Room

Strip Joint, and fine sleazy bar. Total local digs where the stripper is most likely your neighbor and may be not the one you want on stage.
Drinks are fair priced and mixed strong. Fine for a quick fix if any of the other 4 strip joint on 3 miles of this road won't do...

The Roundup Saloon

Roundup Saloon

Sleazy, smoke-filled, mullet-infested den of white trash metalheads and home to the single worst jukebox on the planet. Only a few beers available, Coors, MGD, Budweiser, Sierra Nevada, Red Hook, the like, but an excellent attitude and selection when it comes to hard liquour. Fights are rarely broken up, the pool cues are replaced weekly, and the floor has had the same sawdust since '77. A great place to go and get piss-drunk after a hard day of socially responsible behaviour. Note that the ROundup has a maximum capacity of about 100 people.

An excellent all-around sleazepit, with a lovely anonymous atmosphere, comparatively cheap prices, and that 'I do believe that large trucker over there is eyeballing my ass' feeling that makes American bars what they are.

The Galaxy Cabaret

This sleazy establishment has dished out as many STD's as it has drinks over the years.
I once had a friend mention he wanted to get a bulldozer and just start ramming it down in the middle of the night.When the police would arrive to arrest him,he was going to plead temporary insanity.

This sleazy establishment has paid off our local city council so as to be the only night club licence(open till 2am as oppsed to 1am for a pub)in a many mile radius.The place has had several deaths on it's treacherous ride back to town at the end of a few evenings.

It's parking lot has probably seen more date-rape's than a Serbian occupied Croatian village in the spring.The drinks are cheap ,watered down and the sewage system backs up into the club on a nightly basis. Read more »

Uncle Marty's Pub

Only beers on tap are Bud and Bud Lite. Actually only Bud since the Bud Lite tap handle is just to fool the "ladies". Food is served only on St. Patrick's day and then only corned beef.

Largest purveyor of Jagermeister in the Rockland county. Only one of the bartenders drank it all and there were no receipts for it.

Patrons include old men and a group of people known as the Jackson Whites (a group of hillbillies of dubious racial origins in-bred since the American Revolution).

Village of Suffern mentioned on "Sex in the City", when the proprietor was interviewed about the episode for a newspaper article he stated that the girls from SITC would not like his place since a "Cosmopolitan" has never been served there. Read more »

Cal's

Cal's

This is a true sleazy bar in the heart of the Loop. The paint is peeling off of the walls, the mirror behind the bar (where it isn't busted out) hasn't been cleaned since before the war, their "patio furniture" is tables from the bar moved to the sidewalk, the bathroom is cleaned by a homeless man who is paid in wine (so you can imagine the quality job there), the glassware is murky and the food gives you indigestion right away.

On the upside, if you want to become a regular somewhere, it is easy here. Show up, drink, shut up and then leave. Low-key is hardly the word. The staff is no-nonsense, but friendly. And where else in the Loop can you get a beer for under $2.00.

Cal's...an experience for all who have the guts to do it.

De Biecht

De Biecht

Open late, even during weekdays.
The barman (I forgot his name, Ton or Sjaak or something) is friendly, they have a photoplay machine somewhere and well... that's it really. It's full of obnoxious students of the worst kind (law, economy) but once you're drunk (don't go in there before 1 am) that doesn't really matter, does it?

Astoria Hotel

Astoria Hotel

The Astoria Hotel may be a 'highlight' in a strip of sleazy bars, shops, residential hotels, and street corners: East Hastings.

At a convenient distance of the Carnegie Library (which is not where you borrow books) and Pigeon Park (which is not where you walk your dog), the Astoria Hotel and similar outfits in the neighbourhood provide hangouts for many people without regular places or lives to live.
A reliable source said that behind the empty bottles and so in the liquor store, there is a full-blown boxing club (I'm not sure if they follow Rule #1, so perhaps it should not be in this description?)
Although during the few days of my stay I had no time to check these out, the daily bus trip though guaranteed a wealth of choice.

Tres Maria's

try to find it... it keeps moving around....
its always behind an iron gate... good luck!!
try the local guys in the park!!!!

Big Jer's Titanic

Overlooking the Carribean Sea and central market. Forty-five minutes from Guatemala. American and Belizian food. Cold beer and mixed drinks with friendly people. Local information center.

Akchach Bar

The bar is located 30 km. on the road from Khenifra to Marrakesch. Populated by all important people from the region El Kbab. It's actually a motel, you can also spend the night. The atmosphere is like the Mohaohamo Elzayani Bar in Khenifra. The bar is located really in the middle of nowhere! If you're lucky live Berber music will be played. Check this place out!

Positive Vibrations

I can't remember the name of the street anymore, I think it might be calle Grau, but anyway it's close to the center.
It's been a few years since I have been there, but at that time it had the following advantages:
- two nice barmen, educated enough to know there's more to life than salsa or dollars, and very openminded.
- a nice clientele, relatively few tourists and quite some locals
- cheap drinks (well, that goes for quite a lot of places in Perú) Read more »

The Board of Trade

Board of Trade Saloon

This place was established during the gold rush and in the 70's & 80's the bathrooms looked (& smelled) like they could have been the originals.

In the late 1970's the bars in Nome stayed open 24/7 and the BOT almost always had a few overly refreshed patrons sleeping at the tables in the front of the saloon.
The house band in those days (I think they were "The BOT Band") had the worst sound system, etc which was all moot because the only thing the patrons needed was the back beat for scootin' around on the floor. Read more »

Quiet sleazy.
Don not know the exact number, but it is behind a grey door ...
They have a jukebox on which you can select videoclips.
Open till late.

Post-scriptum: The above is rather an understatement. It is (or at least was ) the sleaziest bar I have ever been in, in Barcelona. It is a meeting point of all kinds of criminals: ranging from street thugs, to pimps, to east european maffia. It has quite a ominous atmosphere (think David Lynch), and while it's a good place when you still want more beer, it's not the place to make new friends (in whatever meaning of that phrase).

Land van Belofte

Land van Belofte

A place packed with pimps, drunks, hookers and their clientelle. Located in a small red light district on the edge of the town center. Just a few meters down from the Benzinebar. Open daily till late!

De Doos

Supposed to be a student-bar. Yeah, right. They may have student prices, in other words it's cheap, but you won't learn shit in here. Or it should be how to get loaded, pick a fight or pick up a lady. All this in one lesson and you're sure to graduate. The music is mostly from the bullshit-genre but, like I said, the drinks are cheap. They're open on mondays and wednessdays and if you're a bit broad-shouldered or largely impudent you can always enter their so-called private parties at the weekends. They got no real owner, so no worries about the bill, but once in a while you'll be forced to hear out the tragic story of one of the volunteers about how they work so hard and earn so little. Just listen, they will go away. If not, that's the moment to pick that fight. I wish you fun. Read more »

De Benzinebar

Open on saturday nights only! By the time you get here, you're too drunk to notice the interior.

If my memory serves me right:it's dark, smelly,cheap and there's a car sticking out of the wall.

Open untill you fall down or black out. Don't come here for a quiet drink, people will try to persuade you to have a one night stand.

IMO

imo.jpg

In my opinion IMO is definitely the sleaziest in the northwestern part of italy. On the outside it appears to
be a cheap wine retailer on a dark, non-descriptive square
in a degraded part of town, locked inside a grid of popular housing, a smelly river, a porno-theater.

Au contraire, IMO is open til late nights (sometimes) and the atmosphere is genuine. The drinks are extraordinarily cheap, service is "as is", meaning that ima (the owner's, imo, wife) will stare at you and mechanichally reach for
whatever you were drinking last. No point in asking as she appareantly will not understand and imo himself is too busy playing a game of "scopone".
Last time I checked a glass of wine was still under 20 euro cents and the collection of rare sub-brand liquors was
still intact. Read more »
